- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.2076, 1.1996, 1.1866
- Resistance: 1.2196, 1.2286, 1.2397
The US Dollar continues to digest gains after rebounding against its Canadian counterpart as expected having put in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Near-term horizontal pivot support-turned-resistance is at 1.2196, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.2286. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 1.2076 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% level at 1.1996.
The available trading range is too narrow to justify entering a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now, waiting for price action to offer a more compelling opportunity down the road.
